In this article for Independent Australia, Gerry Georgatos, coordinator of the National Suicide Prevention & Trauma Recovery Project, discusses the "scandalously" high rates of child removals, of First Nations and Australian children. "At least 16% of Australia’s First Nations children have come to the attention of child protection authorities," says Georgatos, describing this as a "national crime."
